Big Summer by Jennifer Weiner is a vibrant and poignant novel about the power of friendship. Daphne, a plus-sized Instagram model, has made great strides in boosting her self-confidence after a life of insecurity. She's built an online presence that she loves. But when her ex-best friend from high school, Drue Cavanaugh, walks back into her life asking Daphne to stand as her maid-of-honor, Daphne is rightfully speechless.
Letting Drue back into her life is risky, but the invitation does come with an excuse to stay at a waterfront mansion on Cape Cod—the perfect backdrop for Daphne's digital content. After begs and pleads from Drue, Daphne ultimately accepts, embarking on a summer getaway she will never be able to forget—for better or for worse.
Big Summer speaks to the resiliency of the human spirit, the pitfalls of living life online, and the journey to discovering what matters most.
